ellaslist Reviews: A Wild Adventure at Australia Zoo with an Experience Oz pass!

  • All Ages

From the moment we hit the Steve Irwin Way, the excitement kicked in, and it was a thrill for every member of the family, young and old! Our duo of adventure-loving kiddos, aged 9 and 7, couldn't wait to dive into the wonders that Australia Zoo had in store for them.

Arrival and Parking: Navigating the morning rush, we reached the park just as it opened. With the summer sun shining bright, we anticipated some traffic, but the seamless guidance to the free parking area eased any concerns about leaving our car all day.

Animal Encounters Extravaganza At Australia Zoo!

Wildlife Wonders and Family Thrills

Captivated by the cuteness! Our adventure begins with a sneak peek at the animal hospital, where baby birds stole the show.

We kicked off our day with a sneak peek at the animal hospital, where the girls were captivated by adorable baby birds being fed. Excitement escalated as we headed to the koala area, fulfilling my daughter's dream of seeing these cuddly creatures up close.

Pro Tip: For an unforgettable experience with the animals, make sure to pre-purchase these encounters to avoid any disappointment. Trust us; they're worth every penny!

Kangaroo Feeding Frenzy: A Highlight for the Kids

We loved feeding these cuties. 

The ultimate highlight for our little explorers was getting hands-on and feeding the kangaroos. Their gleeful smiles were priceless, making this experience an absolute must-do.

Family-Friendly Touch: The safari shuttle is a saviour for tired legs, taking you from the Giraffe enclosure back to the entry if the little ones need a break.

More Than Just Animals: A Day of Discovery 

Steve Irwin
Walking in the footsteps of a legend!

Amidst the wildlife wonders, Australia Zoo offers a perfect blend of education and entertainment. A play area for the kids, a mini-museum showcasing animal bones, and a journey through Steve Irwin's legacy—every step exudes the spirit of the Crocodile Hunter.

Special Mention: Keep an eye out for the croc feeding at 1:15 pm – unfortunately, our early arrival meant we missed this action-packed spectacle.

Planning for the Next Visit: We're already plotting our return, aiming for a later arrival to catch the live crocs in action—something we won't miss next time!

Final Verdict: A Perfect 10/10!

Our family adventure at Australia Zoo was nothing short of spectacular, earning it a perfect 10/10 in our books! From close encounters with animals to the rich history shared in the mini-museum, every moment was filled with joy and discovery.

If you're a family seeking thrills, animal encounters and unforgettable moments, Australia Zoo is a must-visit, and there is no better value than an Experience Oz pass.
